Jack White has called upon major labels to build their own vinyl record pressing plants in light of recent supply chain issues and manufacturing bottlenecks.
In a video and statement explaining his thoughts, White urged major labels in the music world – Sony, Universal, and Warner Records – “to help alleviate this unfortunate backlog and start dedicating resources to build pressing plants themselves.”
Jack White’s Third Man Records opened a vinyl pressing plant in 2017 and expanded production capacity to try and accommodate the growing demand for vinyl product.
“Across the globe, there are now a handful of new companies, building both automated and manual vinyl presses. It’s easier to purchase a vinyl press now than it has been in four decades. And with more ancillary innovators popping up every day helping advance every facet of the industry, this isn’t a difficult decision to make,” according to the musician and producer.
